Abstract: The Green Bank Telescope has opened up tremendous new opportunities for investigating the fundamental physics of neutron stars. Several ongoing long-term timing programs are elucidating phenomena from neutron-star and companion masses to the dynamics of planetary systems. A large-scale program to survey globular clusters has found more than 50 pulsars, including many in entirely unexpected binaries, and the fastest-spinning pulsar discovered to date, which constrains the neutron-star equation of state.
